An experienced paramedic has pledged to continue to improve ambulance service performance in West Suffolk.

Glenn Young has become the new senior locality manager (SLM) for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust in an area that includes Bury St Edmunds, Mildenhall, Thetford and surrounding villages.

The 40-year-old, who has worked for the ambulance service in the East for 18 years, started his career as an ambulance support care worker before becoming a paramedic.

He has also worked as head of the trust’s emergency control rooms and served a secondment as executive officer for London Ambulance Service. Most recently he has worked as SLM in Cambridgeshire.

He replaces Simon Chase, who has taken on a new role at EEAST for safeguarding patients.

He said: “I want to continue recruitment in West Suffolk and we are looking for new staff as we are putting extra hours of ambulance cover into the area this financial year.

“I’m looking forward to engaging with commissioners and the hospital.

“The area is starting to co-locate with Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service and we are looking forward to working more closely with our colleagues there.”
